The Edradour distillery is known most of all for the individual style of its single malt, which is exported throughout the world. Interestingly, the distillerys owner Andrew Symington, has begun working on special finishes, each one more innovative than the last (Burgundy, Chardonnay, Châteauneuf-du-pape, Madeira, Moscatel, Port, Sassicia, Tokaji, etc.), with these new releases revolutionising the distillerys somewhat outdated image. Under the directorship of Iain Henderson, the former director of Laphraoig, at the end of 2002 Edradour began producing a second, very peaty, single malt called Ballechin, the name of a former distillery in the region.
EDRADOUR 18 YO 2000 Barolo Finish 56.5%
Quantity limited to 1 bottle by client.
The Edradour distillery never ceases to amaze with its audacious and highly popular finishes. Distilled in 2000, this 18-year-old malt was first aged for 12 years in ex-bourbon casks before being matured in casks formerly containing Barolo, a famous wine from Italy’s Piedmont region. Nicknamed “Scotland’s little gem”, Edradour may have lost the title of Scotland’s smallest distillery, but it remains the most endearing. Nestled in the hills of the Scottish Highlands, it was named after the Gaelic word for “between two waters”, referring to the two rivers that enclose the whitewashed buildings with red gates.
